Derek Munn is an artist from Brooklyn, New York, who specializes in typography and print design. His latest project was not created on paper; it was actually a 3D typography installation.

As a young boy, Munn, like other kids, played little league baseball. When having drinks to refresh themselves, the players used styrofoam cups in the dugout that was surrounded by a chain-link fence. In order to keep their drink cups clean, the players stored the cups in the holes of the fence that were in front of the dugout.

Derek Munn used this childhood memory to create his 3D typographic art installation, incorporating famous words and slogans that anyone who plays baseball will notice. You can definitely tell Derek Munn misses his childhood baseball days. Stats for Paper Cup Typography Trending: Older & Mild
